    Friend of mine always liked the old school .45. He liked the knock down. Called it the flying ashtray :)

    I'm dying to shoot it too but every range is closed so it sits in the safe.
    Looking at a few others to keep it company.

    The latest for me is this mid 80’s Schecter Strategy. I saw it on Reverb and pulled the trigger. It arrives on Thursday. Anyone have any experience with these? There isn’t a whole lot of info out there on them.

    Not really new, but bought some Jackson pups and put them in my Hondo/Nuno bastard to make it more normal. Gonna try and sell it. 450cfeda253d5b4c1c22bbcca52110eb.jpg 53255330ba0039fe2b445196ecada56d.jpg

    Gotta love the blue label program, makes me wonder what the markup really is.

    How heavy is it? Does the cavity help keep it light?

    There is fuckery afoot!
    UPDATE:
    It's kinda overwhelming trying to figure out everything. It is loaded. But fairly simple to get up and offering what
    the other tuners offer. It's all the additional stuff.....it has tons. However, I have figured out one thing that just
    tickles my toes. It has 'Guitar Sweetener Tone' tuner modes that are just cool as shit, and make you guitar/tones
    sound sooOOooo much better than a sterile standard tuning. It's hard to explain unless you have the pedal and
    manual in front of you, but it is da bomb. Next up....it has certain artist's signature tunings. It's gonna
    take me months to figure everything out, but at least I'll have something to do during quarantine! For $30 more
    than a Polytune 3... it's a no-brainer. Luckily for me...

    My strat got a new wiring with a DiMarzio FastTrack 1 at neck and a Gibson 490T at bridge. Man, it's uncanny how cool Gibson pups sound in strats.

    Also ordered a new Mooer Baby Bomb pedal sized 30W amp. I'm gonna use it to drive a 2x12" cab with amplitube :)

    I see a classic vibe 60s strat for $140.
    I hear they play great and that's a pretty good price. But its candy apple red. I hate painted guitars. Prob 40 min to 1 hr away.

    I grabbed one of these off of TGP except its gold. I think with the economy the way it is I'm not going to try too hard to sell and just buy things for a little while:
